Moglii is the solo project of 24 year old producer, singer and jazz pianist Simon Ebener Holscher. The musician, based in Duesseldorf, Germany, spends his time creating unique productions of warm beats, analogue synthesizers and soulful vocal samples. His modern electronic compositions are often supplemented by acoustic instruments and an organic soundscape, with the help of field recordings of coffee machines, shopping bags or cactuses!
Legacy Of House is a new song from Yves Larock (Rise Up, Zookey) in colaboration with Mr Mike (Put Your Hands Up, Pump It Up). The history of house music in one song!
A new breed of house music: Fijin is out to bring the melody back in the game with his ‘Love Inside EP’ packed with three vocal uplifting tracks for a soothing experience!
‘Sleeping On Trains’ has nothing of being shrill or loud, doesn’t want to force itself upon you. Nor will you get any fancy gimmickry. Its gentle, natural beauty always remains clear and without disguises. With its compositional lucidity and tonal aesthetics it’s an album which sometimes reminds you of bands like The XX or Maggie Rogers. Enticing melodies from varying synths, sometimes accentuated by an electric guitar embedded in effects; discreetly pushing beats; and the enchanting voice of and poetry by Manuela Doetsch. Sometimes less is just more!
By Invisible City Editions’ standards, Beverly Glenn Copeland’s 1986 album, Keyboard Fantasies, is not that obscure. Of course, it’s barely known to most in the UK, but original copies are nowhere near as pricey as some of the records they reissue. It is, though, a fine album, with Glenn Copeland adding weary, emotion-rich vocals to her own evocative, synthesizer-heavy soundscapes. Musically, it’s something of a curiosity, sitting somewhere between art rock, lofi synth soul, early synth wave and new age ambience!

Jupiter II is slated for release on March 3rd. Over the breadth of nine tracks, Blaudzun’s unmistakably rich timbre and shrewd pop melodies permeate more than ever….!

It’s the sun that shapes our daily reality. It’s passion that drives my music. The will to see and hear, to shape stories that vanish as night comes and that bring new meaning and hope with a new dawn. Let’s face darkness but Run After the Sun: Listen to Marie Kruttlie Trio!
